Type 1 Improver Type 2 Helper Type 3 Achiever Type 4 Artist Type 5 Observer
“I go big, I don’t go home” is your motto.
If you are Type Three, your nickname is the Achiever. Your greatest strength is achieving a successful image. You are action-oriented and always striving to get things done. It is usually more important to you to get something done than to do it perfectly. You focus on getting the bulk of a job right, and, if necessary, letting the last details go in the name of effectiveness and efficiency. With this approach, you get a lot more done than most people.
More than other types, Type Threes especially enjoy the prestige that comes with success, and are willing to work harder and longer to get there. Because of this drive to succeed, you will often find Type Threes heavily represented in roles such as CEO, president, NFL football player, corporate lawyer, neurosurgeon, or a top-grossing salesperson.
As a Type Three, you love competition and winning. You enjoy the challenge of healthy rivalry and earning accolades after a hard struggle. The mindset of Type Threes can be seen throughout American culture in corporations, sports, politics, and Hollywood. While not everyone is a Type Three, the hard-working traits of an Achiever are encouraged in many job settings so many Americans take on these traits in school and at work. The difference between everyone else and you, the Type Three, is that you are internally motivated by a never-ending drive to get things done and keep achieving.
Many Type Threes are talented at managing public image and therefore can make a significant contribution to the public relations and politics of an organization. If this describes you, you will shine in roles that allow you to be the figurehead for an organization or require you to navigate a challenging political landscape. Achievers excel in roles where there is opportunity to work toward status or achievement that makes them feel respected.
